29 Jun Prenergy signs its first bilateral agreement (PPA) for an industrial customer in Sant Feliu de Buixalleu
Prenergy (Prime Rubau Energy), the energy service subsidiary of the Rubau Group, has signed its first on-site bilateral power purchase agreement (PPA) with an industrial lamination production customer in Sant Feliu de Buixalleu. In the first stage the solar plant will be supplied and set up, with a power capacity of 0.7MWp –without surplus- for the self-consumption of the customer. Stage I operations will begin in the summer 2023.
In 2024 the plant will increase its power generation capacity up to an additional 1MWp This second stage, with a power generation surplus, will provide for the self-consumption of the factories of the industrial estate of Sant Feliu de Buixalleu, and it will be sold to the photovoltaic power distribution network. The system is expected to generate energy that is the equivalent of more than the double of the town’s total household consumption.
The bilateral power purchase agreements (PPA) help industry and the tertiary sector to get clean energy and pay for what they consume without having to bear the costs of the investment associated with the supply and the setting up of the plant. In this way, they can benefit from a stable and competitive energy price without the market fluctuations.
